Mary was born August 19, 1925 in Mansfield, MA, daughter of the late Valerio and Esther Firmani Leonelli. She worked for Echlin’s in Branford for twenty years until retiring in 1986. Mary was a communicant of St. Mary Church in Branford, a member of the American Legion Post 83 Ladies Auxiliary, and the Canoe Brook Senior Center, where she also volunteered. She was an avid bingo and card player, she enjoyed traveling and taking cruises, and cooking and knitting for her family. She was a fan of the Red Sox and Patriots.

Mary is survived by her children, Cindy (Brian) Spear of Branford, Paul (Ellen) Dufour, Jr. of North Haven; her grandchildren, Chris (Jen) Spear of St. Albans, VT, Kevin (Maggie) Spear of West Simsbury, Derek Dufour and Lauren Dufour both of Brooklyn, NY; her great-grandchildren, Eli and Noah Spear of St. Albans, VT.
